New Tool, and the do's and dont's...


Posted by Picasa
Today was an exciting mail day.. I got the I-Top tool,
something I have been on and off about, not sure whether
it would be something I would use or not. Well I saw it on http://www.scrapbooksteals.com/  for a great price,
including 2 of the punches and other extras.

First of all I found out that I should not use my circle
punch to try and punch stretchy vinyl :( 
Luckily I managed to save my punch.

Second of all it is not a good idea to use the metal tape
that has an adhesive backing as it kind of gets stuck to
things when you do not want it to.

Third of all, and most important, do not try and prise
apart the brad after you have made it......
I again was lucky and managed to re-use the parts to
make a new brad, it might not be totally round though !

I really am a gadgetaholic so it was clear that eventually
I might own this tool. The little secret I will tell you that
made me finally get this is that whilst I was on the
Tim Holtz cruise he mentioned that it was his new
favourite toy and he would be having lots of things he
would be showing with it in the future.
Now I am armed and ready so I am waiting Tim...

You crack me up!! Didn't know you were getting that--but thanks for the warnings! :) I'll remember that when I HAVE to have this tool in the near future.
